In AOSP the google search bar is not removable.

I remember that back in the days we had patches for that.

So it looks like we are using Launcher3 in Replicant 11:

<project path="packages/apps/Launcher3" name="platform/packages/apps/Launcher3" groups="pdk-fs" />

https://git.replicant.us/replicant-next/manifest/tree/default.xml?h=replicant-11-dev#n609

I think in Replicant 6 we used the Trebuchet launcher instead: https://github.com/LineageOS/android_packages_apps_Trebuchet

So I think if we had patches to do this in the past, I don't think they would work in Replicant 11.

This github issue thread discusses how you can remove the Google Search bar from the home screen: https://github.com/amirzaidi/Launcher3/issues/626

In the github issue above, this repo was linked to and contained this patch named, "Removed lower searchbar and adjusted padding. " here: https://github.com/Recaust/Launcher3/commit/c49091298f858a6a4956887ee10e89af9d1b8604

Perhaps we can merge that patch in Replicant 11.
